If Trusscore products are installed over drywall, will mold grow on the drywall behind the panels?

If moisture comes in contact with the drywall behind the Trusscore product, it is possible that mold can begin to grow. Depending on your application, if adequate spacing is not provided between Trusscore product panels as they are installed over the drywall surface, air movement may be limited which can result in trapped moisture against the drywall.

To avoid this issue, we recommend applying a bead of silicone inside the grooved end of the Trusscore panel prior to inserting the next panel. If you are using J Trim at the bottom of your wall, you must drill drainage holes in the bottom of the J Trim.

Be sure to follow the appropriate installation and trim guidelines for your Trusscore product:
